“I think everybody’s a little desperate on Christmas Eve.”
~Jordana Leigh in, Holiday Hotline
Most of the dialogue by Jordana was adlibbed and improvised in this video. She also had the challenge of pretending to be engaged in a conversation with a customer on the other end of the phone. I thought this line was amusing, as she delivered it just before agreeing to sell the bra she was wearing, and ultimately all the rest of her clothes.
The desperation worked two ways, both for the customer who needed some last minute purchases, and for Jordana who had a bonus incentive to meet a certain number of sales. Jordan’s facial expressions, sometimes showing bewilderment or sometimes disbelief, were wonderful.
